The Florida Panthers and Jaromir Jagr are engaged in ongoing contract talks and are scheduled to chat again later this week, according to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.

The legendary winger is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and the sense is any agreement between the two parties would be announced following the upcoming expansion draft. This would keep the Panthers from having to protect Jagr from the Vegas Golden Knights.

Jagr, of course, could choose to wait until July 1 and see what’s available to him on the open market.

The 45-year-old is coming off a one-year deal that carried a cap hit of $4 million, and he registered an impressive 16 goals and 30 assists in 82 games.
